Yes, I’ve been posting alot of happy/gossipy stuff. Today, let me just sit back for awhile and think, besides all the happy things that are going on…


When my mum was young, she’d sometimes grandma sighing. She’ll ask her why. Grandma told her, she’s “kek sim” (I don’t know how to do a good translation, but those in the hokkien/teochew dialect group should know the meaning). Mum asked, what is “kek sim”. She said, when you grow older, you’ll know. Grandma died young (before I was born).


Mum told me the same thing when I was younger. I often wonder why and what makes someone “kek sim”. Either by chance or by choice or perhaps a combination of both, I finally found out. Now I understood, why grandma died young. She was not happy.
